Fiberglass Bears and the OC Arts Champ

JoAnn Wheeler has a spiffy new web site up for Oil City and its arts, as she dons the mantle of arts champ.

Speaking of Oil City, the Oil Heritage Art Show, according to the Derrick, ". . . starts Saturday and runs through Sunday, July 23, in the Oil Valley Center for the Arts on the first floor of the National Transit Building. Hours will be 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and both Saturdays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both Sundays."

And speaking of The Derrick, they also had a nice piece about the new fiberglass bear (Clarion's "Go Fish" project).
Members of the Clarion County Garden Club unveiled "Honey Bear" on Tuesday at the Clarion County Park in Paint Township. The bear, which is part of the county's "A Beary Good Place" tourism project, will provide a sweet welcome at the entrance of the children's garden at the park.

The Silver Coronet Band will be kicking it old school tomorrow night in Franklin's Bandstand Park around 7:30 pm - free as always...

The Pittsburgh Post Gazette has a nice interactive baseball history map, including some negro league spots.

My mother made a special point today of calling me and telling me Syd Barett was dead. The last time she did that was with Kurt Cobain. I think any other comment on our relationship would be superfluous. Download "Wouldn't You Miss Me" by Syd Barrett

There's a new media-centric blog from Erie, and boy is it making industry people angry...
